contain the items a bit more organized. easy then to throw this into the refrigerator and next morning grab them on the way out the door. >> makes sense. >> interesting ideas and fun ideas for the contents that actually go inside of the lunch. another traditional take on what goes inside the lunch box, make it a little more fun for the carrots, the apple slices. make your child more involved and want to actually eat the contents inside. another option is the sort of lunch skins which is from a local mom here in the washington, d.c. area. they are resealable. a sandwich can go inside. >> very cool. >> they go into the dishwasher, lots of different colors. >> how father is that? >> it is great. then a lot of parents -- how fun is that? >> it is then a lot of parents do i pack the salads and hummus. i talk to them about ice packs. great way for kids to get the nutrition that they need and

way to cut down on the sugar, take a big bottle of justice, versus -- a big bottle of juice, versus a juice box, cut it with water and put it in a reusable bottle. >> any grocery store can you buy these things. >> same with awful these things. >> just had to get that out. that is ingeneralious in a simple way. >> it saves you time and will save you money. so instead of buying tons of juice boxes, cut it corning cut the sugar out that way. buy in bulk. and buy thicks that you can easily throw in that are still nutritious like these sort of happy tot things and you can throw into the lunch box the night before. another option is just actually how you organize your fridge.

time and you save the problem of time. >> this is perfect. i love each and every one of these tips. how do we get to your blog? >> you go to my web site which is w. with that w.rachel- lifestylist.com and there is a link on there. >> i will be becoming a member of -- i will be subscribing to that blog. i need it. thank you so much for coming on. >> thank you very much. much. >> all right, allison. thank you so much. we want to let you know about something special going on here at fox 5. our annual stuff a truck campaign. it is going to happen this try at the giant food locations on your screen. brentwood, hyattsville, montrose crossing and the greenbriar shopping center. this benefits the capital area food bank and we do hope to see you on friday. coming up, a thrilling come
